Musical Graffiti: Radiohead update!

How fitting... a few years ago, Radiohead embarked on what they called the No Logo tour, and now it seems as though they're recording a "no logo" album. The band entered the studio yesterday to put in some more work on their upcoming seventh LP, and apparently they're doing so without the backing of a record label.

Billboard has the story:

Radiohead has been recording on and off at its own studio since early 2004, but it is unknown how much time has been devoted specifically to the as-yet-untitled new project. "We don't take time off very well," guitarist Jonny Greenwood previously told "We're enjoying it still, so why just go home and do nothing?"

A representative from the band's Oxford, England-based management firm Courtyard Management tells that for the current sessions, Radiohead is "putting some ideas together" to "see where they want to go with the next step musically."

The band is also moving forward without label representation, having fulfilled its recording contract with EMI with the 2003 release of "Hail to the Thief." That album debuted at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 932,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
